Description: The Technology Platforms for Tomorrow (TPT) Programme will facilitate an exit from the overarching Fujitsu IT2000 contract. To replace these contracted services, the TPT Programme will deliver enhanced technology to the user base by providing new essential core technology services. The HO contract for its corporate technology managed services expires in April 18 following an extension. A further extension will need to be negotiated to October 18 during which time the programme is disaggregating the existing service in line with government technology strategy.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Programme has an Amber RAG rating following its last independent assurance review (May 2017). A visible increase in enthusiasm, commitment, pace, focus and detail across the programme was noted by the independent review team. Whilst remaining a complex programme, the review gave confidence in the team to address recommendations. These included refreshed governance, developing product management capability beyond the life of the programme, and refining scope. All have been or are being addressed.
Start date: 2014-02-01
End date: 2017-10-31
Schedule text: The Programme's 2017/18 business case, comprehensively revised and updated, has been agreed within the department and is with Cabinet Office and HM Treasury for approval. It included new delivery dates for End User Compute elements of the Programme, which enable large elements of legacy contract termination. The delivery schedule has been published, and is being delivered against.
Baseline: £55.40m
Forecast: £96.50m
Variance: 74.00%
Variance text: The B/F variance in this template has resulted from change in scope rather than a specific overspend that Finance could identify. It should be noted that the baseline numbers, i.e. budget of £55.4m, arise from the previously approved business case and the forecast of £96.5m comes from the recently submitted one. Noteworthy changes that have caused this are setup of the PMO; further investment in change (one-off and recurring) for new services, delay in delivery causing the Programme to run for longer and for existing services to be extended in contrast to original estimates on when the programme was going to deliver and wind-down.
Whole Life Cost: £374.60m
WLCost text: The whole life costs have been revised following a revision of the business case to reflect the revised delivery timetable and scope. This presented a revised programme Net Present Value (NPV) of +£61.5m, and a revised Whole Life (outturn) Cost (WLC) of £420.40m. This excludes current essential Business as Usual technology services, as with the previous WLC figure, but includes all Change Programme Costs as well as New Run Costs within the WLC calculation. The Programme shows a positive NPV against a baseline (Do Minimum) option, which estimated the costs of a "Like for Like Re-Procurement" of a contract for current services.
